  1. Place ground cherries in a food processor; pulse until coarsely chopped. Transfer to a large saucepan.
  2. Stir sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice into the cherries. Bring to a boil; cook, stirring occasionally, until ground cherries soften, about 15 minutes. Add lemon gelatin; stir until dissolved. Skim any foam off the top of the jam with a slotted spoon.
  3. Pour jam into two 8-ounce freezer-safe containers. Let stand until thickened and set, about 30 minutes. Transfer to the freezer.

I reduced the sugar by 1/2 and still found it very sweet. I doubled the recipe and will use only 1 1/2 cups sugar next time. I used only 1 box jello and jam thickened well. Good overall taste.
